New to Market: The Weld Arms, East Lulworth, Dorset

September 4, 2017

The Pubs and Bars Team at specialist leisure property agents Davis Coffer Lyons has been instructed to market The Weld Arms which is a historic Grade II Listed public house in East Lulworth near Wareham, Dorset.

The property comprises an attractive Grade II Listed rendered brick-built building, dating back to circa 1700. The sale includes five letting bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms plus an additional two-bedroom cottage.

East Lulworth is a picturesque small hamlet located between Poole and Dorchester and in close proximity to Lulworth Cove and Lulworth Castle which hosts a range of annual events including two well known music festivals as well as weddings regularly at weekends with guests often staying at the Weld Arms.

Keith Goodwin, Associate Director, Davis Coffer Lyons, said: “The property has excellent existing trade from its strong ‘honeypot location’ but there is massive scope to increase trade further. The property has been fully refurbished throughout yet retaining many character features including open fires and exposed woodwork and beams.”

Internally, the pub is split into three main interconnecting rooms, with a lounge bar (30 covers), formal dining area (27) and a ‘snug room’ (14). The ground floor also provides a kitchen, office, WCs, various stores, ‘satellite’ bar servery to service external diners in the summer.

The pub also has a number of outbuildings giving the possibility of introducing a micro brewery on site as well as having a large lawned trade garden to the rear and a trade patio and customer car park.

Premium offers in excess of £50,000 are invited for the free of tie leasehold interest with approximately 16 years remaining on the lease.
